The University Faculty

Office of the Dean


As  a  rule,  faculty  members  with  responsibility  for  undergraduate  instruction  are  expected to engage in the advising of undergraduate students.  The precise form of this  advising varies from one academic unit to another and is ordinarily established by the  department  chair  or  dean  in  consultation  with  individual  faculty  members.  The  advising expected of faculty members usually pertains to academic work within their  studentsʹ  college  or  academic  major  but  frequently  includes  advice  about  career  objectives as well.  A faculty member should not hesitate to contact Cornell Health if they have concerns about a particular student.
